NORDAAS AMERICAN HOMES Minnesota Lake, Minnesota Phone: 507+462-3331 ANN LANDERS Massachusetts Drivers Shown Worst DEAR ANN: Since you live in Illinois you will probably be ashamed to print this letter, but I'm going to give it a try. According to the National Safety Council, Illinois drivers are very nearly the worst in the United States. Massachusetts gets first place or last, depending on how you look at it. A Boston driver has to pay $839 a year to insure a medium sized car with a $200 deductible clause. (That means the owner of the car has to pay for the first $200 in repairs.) A Chicago driver pays about $525 for a policy with a $100 deductible clause. Wyoming is the most dangerous state to drive in. New Mexico is second. The i reason for this is that people lend to drive faster in rural states because there are more wide-open spaces. Guess which city has the most accidents? It's Houston, with Detroit second and Chicago third. The most dangerous time of day for driving is between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. The most hazardous months are December and January. Most accidents occur because a driver refused to yield the righl of way. The number two cause lailgaling. The safest drivers in the country are in Keene, N.H. and Sioux Falls, S.D. The reason I am writing this leiter is because I happen to be a slitistics buff and thought maybe others who read this might like to know it pays to be careful if they plan on driving through Illinois or Massachusetts.

I was told to add, 'Seventy- nine per cent of the accidents are what traffic police call 'fender benders' — and only 0.3 involve loss of life." (Thai's encouraging!) DEAR ANN: Today is my birthday and as usual, the clod had to run over to the neighborhood drugstore to buy me a card. He forgot. You can imagine how much I'll enjoy the card under such circumstances. This is the fifth year in a row he "forgot." I hope every husband who reads this will realize that a woman's birthday is important to her. It's the one day in the year that is hers and hers alone.

Mrs. Lucille Castro reviewed "Babunia" by Bill Basansky. The story is about a grandmother's faith that delivered her family from Russian Communists and Germans in World War II. The author, brother Alexei, sister Lieta, parents, and grandmother were forced to leave. Many perished from cold and starvation. The faith and prayers of Babunia helped sustain the Basanskys. Next meeting is a Christmas party at Mrs. Reid Klemp's home, 608 E. Price, Dec. 5. Garden Cily Telegram Tluirwluy. November 17, 1977 1'iifji' 5 Erma Bombeck's AT WITS END The Anchovy: A Sneaky Little Devil In the olden days B.C. (Before Canapes), this column would never have been written, but since hors d'oeuvres, appetizers, and (hose little before-dinner snacks have become so chic, it's an absolute necessity. There are some foods that do not diminish when you chew them...they grow, and I suspect multiply. One of them is the anchovy. I have inadvertently found myself with an anchovy in my mouth which I have chewed on vigorously for three days and swallowed 137 times only to wake up in the middle of the night and realize I was still chewing it. Anchovies are sneaky little devils and often disguise themselves as edible. They never look the same. Once in your mouth, however, they wrap themselves around your front tooth and refuse to let go. The late naturalist, Euell Gibbons, once wrote about eating a seaweed called Dulse. He said when this reddish weed was fresh from the tide pool it was lough and tasteless, giving the sensation of chewing on a salted rubber band. However, one rainy day when he craved some, he put a little in an open work onion bag, dried it an hour in the aulomatic clothes dryer and it tasted wonderful. There is nothing you can do for an anchovy. You can salt it down, dry it out, pickle it, can it, sautee it, and make a paste out of it. It still tastes like you're eating bait. It's baffling lo me. But there are some people who do not find anchovies disgusting at all and I try lo be tolerant. I have one friend, old Fish Breath, who invariably orders them on her pizza when she is in my presence. It's all I can do lo remember she is kind lo her molher, lilhes to Ihe church and doesn't litter our highways. As I circled a table full of appetizers the other night, il occurred to me thai one of life's grealesl mysteries is, "What's in all those litlle globs and mounds of shredded food?" It's one of the few places where I throw pride to the wind and wear my glasses. As I bent over a crust of bread, shaped like a diamond and covered with bits of bacon, shredded shrimp, a glob of blue cheese and a toothpick holding an olive with an almond center, I looked al my husband. His teeth weren't meeting. He gasped only two words before he took leave: "It's liver!" Unlike an anchovy, liver doesn't grow or multiply. Liver is like malaria. Once you think it's gone, the taste comes back...maybe not today or tomorrow... bul someday. . ^ Johnson Pholos %rry Walter and Ruby Wilson, Garden City, were remarried Friday, Oct. 21, in the First Christian Church.
